Hypothetical scenario time.
Let’s say everything you’re familiar with–any higher education you have, your career up to this point, your nuclear family, your closest friends–was all gone. Let’s presume it’s gone without you feeling any grief or sense of loss; pretend it never happened, but you are still otherwise the type of person you are today.
What kind of life would you be living? What would you be doing for a living? Where would you go?
If I didn’t know my fiance and had not studied what (and where) I did and was just the person with the interests I have today, I think I might be more entrepreneurial and risk-taking with my career (start my own business?), and definitely more adventurous travel-wise.
